Wonderful vintage Tom Scott

"Another winner. It was so great to find this one on CD. I remember when the title originally came out and was so glad to see this, along with other fav-Doc Severnsen's "Brand New Thing" Both feature studio cats who really add some wonderful stuff. Eric Gale (guitar) and Richard Tee (Fender Rhodes, piano), both whom we lost sadly, really pull it together. Ralph Macdonald on percussion, among some very tasty string work on Dream Lady and Shadows. And, a catchy version of "Gotcha" Theme to Starsky and Hutch. My only complaint with the recording, originally, was the saxes sounded tinny and a bit loud but it's forgivable because this work is so well done. If you love 70s style fusion as much as I, this is another one for the library. See, also, Tom Scott and the LA Express albums, several, like "Tom Cat" and "New York Connection". All vintage, wonderful, and full of rich melodious charts. Fun."
